Overview of Burnished Silver Eagles

Introduced in 2006 to mark the 20th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle program, Burnished Silver Eagles are crafted using a special minting process. Unlike the standard brilliant uncirculated coins, burnished coins are struck from specially prepared blanks. These blanks are hand-loaded into the press and struck on specially polished dies, resulting in a soft, matte finish that beautifully highlights the intricate details of their designs. Typically, these coins are minted at the West Point facility and bear the "W" mint mark, denoting their premium status.

Thomas Uram’s Signature

Each of these coins comes with the signature of Thomas Uram on the certification slab, provided by trusted grading services like NGC or PCGS. Uram’s signature adds a layer of numismatic credibility and collectibility, enhancing the coin’s appeal and value. His extensive background and respected position within the numismatic community lend an additional layer of desirability and trust to each piece.

Certification and Collectibility The addition of a certification label signed by Thomas Uram confirms the coin's authenticity and grade, making it a highly coveted item for collectors. The certification process ensures that each coin is preserved in its optimal condition and authenticated according to the highest standards. Collectors often seek out such certified and signed coins because they represent not only a safe investment but also a piece of numismatic artistry verified by a renowned expert.

The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, features a heraldic eagle with a shield, an olive branch in the right talon, and arrows in the left, signifying America's strength and readiness to defend its values.
